Pupils are required to attend school daily. Our school hours are 8.45am – 3.15pm. Parents must inform the school of a reason for absence before 9.30am to prevent the absence being recorded as unauthorised. Any unauthorised absences are reported to the Education Welfare Officer. School attendance is monitored by the Headteacher and the Local Authority in accordance with the Education Attendance Regulations.

Punctuality is important both for the child and the teacher. Please ensure that your child arrives at school at 8.45am ready to learn. A child arriving at school after this time will be recorded officially as late.

Our Education Welfare Office will contact parents if they, or the school, have any concerns about attendance or lateness. The Education Welfare Officer visits the school once every half term and works closely with school to ensure that all children are receiving their educational entitlement. As is the case with attendance, persistent lateness is recorded & reported to Local Authority.
